Growing up a Pastor's Kid, faith has always been a part of Macho's life. From the early age of 2, his father began pouring into Macho the gift of music, which to this day is one of the primary avenues Macho uses to express his passion for God.
Macho (nickname given by his mother when he was an infant) has spent his life with the aim of putting God on display. He has an undergraduate degree in Pastoral Ministries from Nyack College (Nyack, NY) and holds graduate degrees in Christian Ministry and Church Development from Crown College (St. Bonifacious, MN) and Alliance Theological Seminary (Nyack, NY).
He spent the bulk of his life pre-college in active musical ministry with his sisters, traveling throughout various parts of the US as well as other parts of the world, as well as having recorded two musical albums with them.
Macho is married to Erica (since 2007) and together they have two children; Eliana (2010) and Elias (2012).
His passions include leading the corporate response of worship through song and music, teaching, and preaching.
